Junction, Kansas, August 27, 1854.
PRECINCT CAUCUS. The Republicans of
Junction City precinct, and those who favor the
election of Atintham Lincoln and Andrew John
son, will meet at Wilson's Hall on Wednesday
evening. August 31st, frr the purpose of selecting
delegates to the County Convention.
U We want Wood. Bring us a cord or two.
0"The settlers have mainly left the Solomon,
Saline and Chapman's Creek. Many families
arc in town, and others are in Salina.
O Messrs. Loefcwood and Columbia, of Coun
cil Grove, spent a day in this little berg during
the past week. There isn't anything the matter
O Twenty-five Thousand Bushels of Shelled
Corn, and Six Hundred Tons of Hay, are wanted
at Fort Zariah. Proposals will be received al
Fort Leavenworth until September 3d.
O Let every Republican remember the pre
cinct caucuses called for next Wednesday. In
thiB precinct the meeting will be at Wilson's
Hall in the evening
For Labsed. Strickler fc Co., started during
the week a larga train for Fort Larned. heavily
loaded with Corn. They will remain there, and
work on the hay contract. The outfit looked
hostile revolvers, muskets, and ammunition
being a big item with them. They start another
train in a few dajs.
Horses Wanted. Captain MoClure advertises
for horses. It is hoped the citizens will bring
forwsrd their horses, 59 the service is in great
eed of them. The troops between here and
Larned have all been dismounted, bythe Indians
stampeding their stock, and it is essentially
necessary to our own security that they should
be again supplied. Good price offered.
IT We see various accounts of Jim Lane's
tour through the Northern tier. One says he
has done much good, and the other says he has
not. We notice that ever since be wsb through
there Sol. Miller has been lecturing on modesty
One more canvass, and eld Jim will have the
devil preaching righteousness.
S Captain John Whiteford writes us from
Fort Smith that there will shortly arrive at Fort
Scctt a large'lhumber of children, whose parents';
have been killed in Arkansas by the rebelB.
It is expected that the people of Kansas will care
for these orphans. Those who would be willing
to take one or more of these children should ad
dress the Provost Marshal at Fort Scott imme
diately. Ixpux Movements. We learn that .last Mon
day a large body of Indians passed through
Clay county, going West. They were seen at a
distance, and their number judged to be several
hundred. They were evidently Pottawattomies.
In this connection we might suggest to the peo
ple to communicate to General Blunt immediately
every sign of Indians or intelligence of depreda
tions. We all knew how worthless a story
becomes after Madame Rumor has handled it.
A Scrp stu Spt. A man brought into town
last Tuesday for examination, charged with
b"ing an Indian spy. He is known to go back
and forwards among the Indians, occasional!
playing- idiot, and then again can talk only
German. He mny only be a fool, but still many
of the people are alarmed. A woman passed
through Clay county one day last week, who
was afterwards seen on Chapman 8 Creek, and
her nii'sterious. movements alarmed some of the
people. The man is incarcerated at Fort Riley.
The Bewt-ji Creek Massacre. We have re
ceived a letter from Mr. O. P. Hamilton, Salina,
giving details of this massacre, but as it is out
of date, we quote only the following: "There
were men with the party who went out after-the
hunters, who are well acquainted with the plain
Indians, and they found at the place of massacre
arrows of the Camanches, Kiowas. Clieyennes,
Arrapahoes, one Kaw bow and arrow, and also
arrows which tfiey knew nothing of. The wo
man has given testimony that there were shaved
headed and painted Indians, which no doubt
were the Kaws."
O. E. Beatls. This true and well-tried vetcr
nn soldier is once more among us. crippled some
what by a wound in the foot, but otherwise sound
and hearty. G. E. Beates, who would now
wear the eagles if merit was a test for promotion
has served in the ranks of the gallant old Kan
sas Second three years and a half, and has struck
most effective blows for Liberty and Union,
ever with the foremost of that noble regiment in
burling back the traitorous hordes of the South.
Incapacitated by honorable wounds for further
duty in tho field, we believe bis fellow citizens
will not allow him to fill any minor position in
eivil life at home.
Tbo New Orleans Era, of the 14th, has
tbe following :
The Keytona from Mobile Bay, arrived
this morning, and reports that Granger's
forces are within 500 jarda of Fort Morgan.
The fact that the enemy does not fire is
considered proof that the fort will surrender
soon. Mortars with gnnboats ready, .will
begin the bombardment as soon as ordered..
Tbe surrender of the place is hourly expect-,
cd. Tbe Charleston Mercury, of tbe 15th
inst, says non-combatants were ordered to
leave Mobile. It was thought impossible
for the garrison to hold oat against Farra

Tbe Hon. John Cessna, of Bedford.
Pennsylvania, long and - widely iknswn as
leading Democrat-ina recent smeck-de
scribed a hind of people whom he bad found
in Southern Pennsylvania. We print the
description to order that oar readers may
judge whether any such people Inhabit
their respective neighborhoods. We cer
tainly have seen such. Hear Mr. Cessna :
"There are, unfortunately, those among
us who cannot discuss tbe question a single
moment without showing that tfiey'are Foes
of the Government, and enemies of their
race. Tbe people soon learn to God out and
know these men. Human skill and inge
nuity , and all of a traitor s cunning, can
not long succeed in concealing their real
sentiments. They hang back or skulk
away from our public gatherings, on our
national holidays; they disparage Union
officers and soldiers, and eulogize tbe rebels
All Union victories are insignificant of
little account ; rebel victories aro of lacal
cuable value and importance. Good news
is never credited ; bad news is often origin
ated, believed and circulated, long before
verified. Taxes aro obnoxious and oppres
sive ; drafts are unconstitutional and odious ;
war is bloody and desolating, and tbe nation
ought at once to stop it. For nearly four
years everything has been wrong ; nothing
excellent, nothing even praiseworthy or
passable, has ever been done by their own
Government only mistakes, wrongs, wiok-
ed acts of tyrranny and earnest appeals
are made to the people to anso in their
might, and prevent the establishment of a
military despotism. During all this time
they nave nover been known to ntter a
word of denunciation against tho rebellion,
or see an improper act south of the rebel
hoes. These are the unmistakcablo ear
marks of the traitor. He may remonstrate;
be may write down beneath the picture, in
large letters, the word " patriot :" he may
in very aoisy and earnest words, insist that
be is a " sound Democrat," and that every
man of his party who sustains tbe war is
an Abolitionist. Yet, After all, he is neith
er a patriot nor a good Democrat. You
may turn him upside down, and inside out,
and cleanse and wash him with all the pure
waters of America, and you can make not b
ing out of him but a poor miserable traitor
just such a one as General Jackson would
have strong up for treason in bis day, aud
looked.for the authority afterward." M
